Lot C: Solitary Mushroom

Photo: Diane Edwardson, February 4, 2015.  A lone, 2" tall, yellow mushroom sprouted on Lot C & was gone by the next day.  (Click on photo to enlarge.)

February (the month when we see the most rain) is usually the month to photograph mushrooms on the Red Car Property, but with no rain in sight, the season seemed to last a week.  We're working through last week's photos.

Disclaimer: The Corralitas Red Car Property Blog prefers to quote reliable sources, such as CalFlora and California Poison Control on the issue of toxicity. MykoWeb is the resource everyone seems to refer to for mushrooms. The Los Angeles Mycological Society has a recommended reading list

If you are eating your way through the Red Car Property, we DO NOT recommend you eat any plant you find in the Red Car Property neighborhood without first doing your own research.
